Need advice protecting outside wood piece
I am usually at the Kitchen forum, but came over here for some help. I have a hutch type piece of furniture that I would like to put on my covered porch for the summer. My plans are to decorate with flowers, plants and summer items. This piece is pine and is already painted or it could be stained..I am not sure. It will get wet if the wind blows the rain just right so I would like to protect if from warping or separating. Any suggestions?
Other wood pieces are put outside so I would think this was doable. Stopped at Home Depot yesterday but they were no help....very confusing.
Thanks for any help with this. Zoe
